For all those keyboard freaks (like me):

I'd like the ability to cycle through search engines in the search bar by simply
pressing CTRL+K multiple times (once search focus attained).

It would also be nice to be able to press CTRL+Enter to open the search results
in a new tab



Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Press CTRL+K (search bar highlighted)
2.  Press CTRL+K (search engines should begin to cycle!)
....
3.  Enter Search criterion

4.  press CTRL+Enter to open new tab with search results
OR
4.  press enter to open search results in present tab

Actual Results:  
Not implemented - yet :)

Present search engine still selected (google by default)

Pressing CTRL+Enter doesn't return results of search in new tab window

Expected Results:  
Search engines should cycle with each subsequent CTRL+K (if search is presently
focussed)

Search results should be returned to new tab window when CTRL+Enter is pressed.

Note that you can use ctrl-up/down to cycle the engines.
This was already decided against in favour of the Ctrl-Up/Down keybindings.
